Mercury News | 07/26/2002 | Congressional bill would benefit small Webcasters

Wait a second… small webcasters don’t have millions of dollars to lobby for this! They’re violating the sanctity of the entire political system for some people who might be rich one day.

USATODAY.com – Stem cells grow eye blood vessels

Good for the scientists who carried out this study. Bad for the Luddites and Zealots, many of whom work in the current Administration, who would make this sort of study illegal.

Coke reportedly plans diet version of Vanilla Coke

Then, Diet Vanilla Cherry Coke. Then Diet Vanilla Cherry Coke Clear. Well, maybe not. I might try this, before my kidneys shut down.

Arabs boycott U.S. goods over Mideast policies, but critics say Arab businesses are hurt

Oops!

What’s more, the Arab world really doesn’t represent a big portion of America’s foreign trade (except for oil, of course) so we aren’t hurt much. And moreover, they’re only really able to boycott stuff like cola and fast food. It’s not like they can do without American computers and the like.

Idiots.

Freaks.

AP Wire | 07/28/2002 | Sen. Lieberman assails Bush demand

I’m with Lieberman on this one, even if he is running for President. The whole attempt to overturn civil-service rules on the “Homeland Security” bill is just Bush trying to do his normal anti-labor garbage, with no real national security angle.

The Nando Times: Palm seeking a reverse stock split

Hey, Palm is still in business! Not for long though, not with a stock price of $1.23.

Pope says sexual abuse by ‘some’ priests causes ‘sadness and shame’

You think? Apologies are all well and good, but asking children and others to support the Church when the Church keeps refusing to put its own house in order won’t do any good. They want to support the Church; you’re making it impossible.
